I have also recently been fired from a position , OVER the PHONE! I had been an Administrator, Director of nursing, Quality assurance and Compliance filled in as field nursing. 2 Days after I turned 65 i was fired under the term " they were no longer servicing my community". I know nurses are going into the region. I helped them get the business going and become CHAPS accredited, trainings, infection control, connected with community resources and was on my 3rd year and they discarded me like I was nothing! I understand your plight, and now I am having a difficult time finding another job because who wants to hire a 65 year old woman, even though I have an impeccable resume. i feel in the 40 years of nursing our profession has changed and Administration is about quantity not quality.

What type of job should I seek as a retired educator? It seems most positions are looking for a much younger applicant. I like administration but I don't want to teach in the classroom anymore. I already taught K-12 and most recently have been an adjunct professor at a local private university. What can I do? My self-esteem is way down right no.

I amt just trying to get back to work after a work injury. They gave my job away and would not help me find another within the co. I worked for this Hospital for10 yrs and it meant nothing. And every interview I go to seem to love my resume and work ethic but figure out I'm 59 yrs old and start making excuses or don't call back at all

If you are an unemployed older adult, it's easy to assume ageism or age discrimination when you're turned down for jobs time after time. Yes age discrimination does exist but it is not the barrier EVERY time. Don't let a presumption of "they'll think I'm too old" hold you back. And don't let it cloud your thinking and your analysis of what you can improve in order to become a more desirable candidate. https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/should-age-neutral-thing-jessica-goldberg #ageism #agediscrimination #olderworkers #jobsearch

I have been seeking a job as I am also doing freelancing work. I spoke to a cousin who I had not spoken to for a few years. He was so happy in Florida and he encouraged me to just take a look at job market there. I come to find that there are many more opportunities and am thinking to relocate for a few years if I can find a job. Apparently Florida attracts retires and companies in Florida are not so quick to dismiss the idea of hiring older people that are 50 +. My cousin will let me stay there while I get my footing if I do actually relocate. I am thinking outside the box so I do not go nutty about things I can not change like my age.
